What a Sporting Legacy!
We had an absolutely fantastic afternoon at our annual sports day.
The sprint finals for each Year Group started us off at pace and the cheers of both pupils and parents were heard throughout Fenny Compton! The children then moved into their house groups and demonstrated their skill on the rota of activities including long jump, bucket and ball, bean bag on your head, goal scoring, javelin, egg and spoon and quoit balancing. Impressive distances were thrown and jumped, accurate throwing and kicking was seen and brilliant balancing was done, as children competed against each other, winning points for their house. Mrs Cooper timed 8 minutes for each event and the Year 6 team captains were excellent at organising their team of children from Reception to Year 5, demonstrating their leadership skills, as they moved around from station to station.
The afternoon was brought to a close with a presentation ceremony for the 1st, 2nd and 3rd placed sprinters (names to be in this week’s ‘In Touch’) and the winning house was announced – many congratulations to Mercury!
Thank you to the teachers and teaching assistants for setting up and running the afternoon, parents and grandparents for joining us and, of course, the children for participating so superbly. It was a huge success. We hope you all enjoyed yourselves – there was a great atmosphere and the children were supporting each other and cheering each other on – that’s The Dassett spirit!
